For the Show Your Style Blog Hop, click HERE
For the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge, click HERE


Hello and welcome to My-O's 32 Birthday Blog Hop!! Shannon is turning 32 and what better thing to do then have a hop with crafty people to celebrate!!


If you stumbled upon this hop by chance, excellent!! Just make sure you start back at the beginning to give Shannon, the birthday girl, some warm wishes and for a chance to win some awesome yummy candy!! If you came here from my dear, amazing friend, Rhonda, then you are in the right place!!


For my project, I made Shannon a birthday card using her favorite color: green!! The base of the card is a Spellbinders Grand Label 23. I embossed it with the Plum Blossoms embossing folder. The green paper is from DCWV and I stitched the patterned paper from My Mind's Eye on top. I inked all of the edges with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.


The butterfly is a Spellbinders Nested Butterfly, and I embossed it with Swiss Dots, added a flower from Flower Shoppe and handmade stickpins for antennae.


"Happy" is from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes stamp set, and "Birthday" is from Coffee & Tea for You & Me stamp set. Click HERE to purchase you own sets!! The tag is a Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, inked with Shabby Shutters. The gems are from Recollections and the lace flower ribbon from Hobby Lobby.


I used another Twisted Metal Tags and Accents die for the inside.

I have blog candy!! To celebrate Shannon's birthday, I am giving away a set of Fiskars "It's Your Day" stamps!!


All you have to do to be eligible to win this fun stamp set is:
  1. 1. Be a follower
  2. 2. Leave a comment with a way to contact you
That's it!! I will select a winner via Random.org on Sunday, 4/29!! I also have a giveaway going on right now for a set of K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamps!! Click HERE to enter!!

Thanks for hopping along today!! Your next stop in the festivities is my sweet friend, the fabulous and talented Oma Gloria!!

Karen said...

Oooh, this is SO pretty! My sweet friend, this birthday card is a burst of sunshine to your dear pal! I love that you used such a vibrant shade for the festive occasion and I love the glittery patterned paper, too! My heart fluttered over a million things here.. the gorgeous embossing (need that folder), the exquisite stick pin usage, gorgeous flower, and the sparkliest trail ever created for her sparkly journey through life! That sweet ribbon is in my stash and I'm pretty sure it has earned the title of "Favorite Ribbon That Gets Neglected." I've only used it once or twice, but it's so whimsical and beautiful. Stunning creation as always, my talented friend... inside and out. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
